    Client hanging when making remote call to bean

    Johan Persson Newbie

      Hi everyone!

      We are having problem getting the external clients of our application to communicate properly with the application-core (running jboss-4.0.3).

      Depending on from which machine we're trying to make the call we get two different error-cases.

      Case 1:
      Lookup of bean works but then later when actually trying make the remote-call the client hangs. We don't get any exception, nothing. After ca 30 min we get a timeout. tcpdump shows that the method call is getting through and that the server is sending a response back to the client but after that it's totally silent between the two.

      Case 2:
      When looking up the bean the client hangs. When doing a tcpdump at the same time as doing the lookup we don't even see that the client is trying to access the server.

      We've with telnet verfied that a connection can be made from the machine where the client is running to the server where the bean is running.

      Lookup code:

      env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "jnp://"+server+":"+port);
      InitialContext ctx = new InitialContext(env);
      RemoteReportController rc = (RemoteReportController)ctx.lookup(RemoteReportController.class.getName());

      Does anyone have any idea why this is? We find it quite weird that it's just getting stuck instead of throwing an exception.

      Would appreciate any help!
